Introducing Public Health Perspectives: A Podcast Series

JPHMP presents Public Health Perspectives, a podcast series targeted towards strengthening the future public health workforce. We will explore the narratives of public health care professionals and gain insight on career paths that shape the profession. In our journey, we will use JPHMP’s 21 Public Health Case Studies on Policy & Administration, which provides case studies that help students and practitioners connect with real life experiences. These case studies explore core problems, stakeholders, steps taken, challenges, results, conclusions, and discussion questions for analysis that can be used to strengthen the Council on Education for Public Health (CEPH) accreditation criteria that form the foundation of public health degrees.

Novick and Cynthia Morrow, co-editors of JPHMP’s 21 Public Health Case Studies on Policy & Administration (Wolters Kluwer, 2017), join host Camelia Singletary, MPH, live at the American Public Health Association conference in Atlanta, Georgia, to discuss why the editors chose to focus on the case-based learning strategies presented in their new book and the ways that realistic insight gleaned from actual case examples will be beneficial to future public health professionals.
